I saw this on tiktok at the weekend and thought it would be a great tuff tray for the first few days. Plus who doesn't love glitter!? 🌟

The children have been enjoying copying the patterns and practising to draw any letters they might know in their name.

Next week we are ...introducing our first few letters so this gives them a chance to make marks beforehand. ✍ 🔡 📝

🌻 SUNFLOWERS 🌻

The Year R children have been settling in this week so here's our first 2 tuff trays of the week. They enjoyed this first one and drew pictures of the sunflowers using crayons and chalk. We talked about the colours and what each part of the flower was called. ...They told me their favourite thing about the flowers. 🥰

I think it is safe to say I am obsessed with my #tufftray. This week I wanted to encourage the children to practise their 2 times tables whilst also having fun.

🐛 The Very Hungry Caterpillar 🐛
.
Our focus in English over the next two weeks is this fantastic story 🐛🍎🍏🍐🍊🍇
.
I always seem to use my tuff tray for maths, so I thought this lovely activity would be a nice change next week.
.
Also it has been a ...really long, exhausting week but I am taking this little win of having this all set up and ready to go before I left today! This certainly doesn’t happen often!!
.
Have a good weekend everyone 🥰

My favourite….

My favourite thing is finding hidden gems at the back of a cupboard. When I came across these coloured sand bottles I knew I’d use them for mark making skills in these amazing ikeauk trays.
Such a quick and easy set up and the children engaged with it all day.

🧵🧶🪡💦💦💦 It’s 30 degrees! Wash the food! My mum made all of my felt food and it has been loved for years by the children that I’ve taught. You may notice most of the food is ‘phonics friendly’ so that the children can easily write the words phonetically i.e. chip, peas, ...fish, egg, ham, pancake, bun, cheese’ to encourage them in their writing when playing cafes or shops. 💕 #eyfs #eyfsideas #eyfsclassroom #eyfsteacher #eyfsinspiration #eyfsactivities #eyfsoutdoors #eyfslearning #eyfsliteracy #teacher #reception #nursery #receptionclass #nurseryclass #earlyyears #tufftray #outdoorlearningenvironment #outdoorlearningspace #learning #tufftrayideas #tuffytuesdays #tufftrayplay #tuffspot #tuffspotideas #tufftrayfun

#tufftraytuesday

Here is my week in Tuff trays! 🤣 We have had so much fun with our Tuff Tray this past week! I have been trying out different objects to see what my children enjoy, they are so excited to see each morning what they get to explore!

1. Coloured Wooden blocks- To... build, play, sort and organize
2. Dinoland- Coloured Chickpea and lentils mid, shredded coloured paper, plastic dinosaur set from tescoirl
3. Plastic Balls- To sort, bounce, squish and…..throw 🤣
4. Coloured pom poms - For all of the above and tweezers add fine motor skill practice! ☺️

As you can see we have been working with our colors a lot during our first week of school. It has just dawned on me that I have no picture of the floor after these activities 🤣 #disaster but proof that fun was had!

We are getting to know each-other through play in our classroom but I am looking forward to using our Tuff Tray for specific lessons too! ☺️ Anywhooo I’m rambling! Happy Tuff Tray Tuesday! ♥️
